3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours a dark amber brown with a decent head and a slight haze. The nose has a little spice along with expected biscuits and some toffee. The taste has more biscuits and toffee with some of the spice again, which I associate with rye. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy elegant texture and an easy drinking finish. Overall, a good session ale and would probably have a second but beyond that .........
Cask @ Fuller’s King’s Cross. Pours dark brown, with thin head. Sour aroma, thin watery texture, not much flavour. Disappointing MrTipple (6570) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2014
Aroma: grain malts, caramel, some light spice. Appearance: dark, clear brown, hardly any head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: malts continue, caramel, some grain, relatively short, lightly bitter finish. Overall: OK Bitter, nothing terribly exciting though. Pint at Cat and Canary, Canary Wharf.

Dark brown colour. Some dark malts. Quite sweet and fruity with some toffee and perhaps a bit of spice lingering in the background. jamesie1857 (1984) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
On cask at Greyhound Inn, Coventry - Muddy brown body, white lacing head. A bit tart on the nose, oranges and mandarins, a bit of bubblegum too. A decent rich mouthful of roasted malts, fennel and oranges once more. Lasting finish, a little on the bitter side.

No. 1 Refreshment Room, Cleethorpes, 31/08/13. Pale chestnut utterly sodden with cream lace. Nose English country lane on a dismal wet afternoon with a train passing by. Eggs. Match box strike pad. Monster Munch afters. That creamy aniseed Batemans thing. Biscuit crumbs. Onwards. fonefan (51574) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 28, 2013

Cask (handpump) @ Pelton Arms, 23-25 Pelton Road, Greenwich, Greater London, England SE10 9PQ.
Clear medium to dark brown amber colour with a average, frothy - fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing to lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, dark spicy. Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration, caramel, fruity, spciy, nutty. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. 
Tasted this in Tennents Bar, Glasgow in November 2012. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear dark garnet in colour with a thick creamy off white head. Slight note of roast malt in there along with sweet berry fruit. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts give a fruitloaf base with tart redcurrant and pink grapefruit evident. Strong hop prickle noted in the dry bitter aftertaste, long in intensity. Finish is malty with a strong woody oak cask note left in the mouth. A decent autumn session ale but not that outstanding though. Nilz (523) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 28, 2012
A nice dark ruby with a thick beige head. Aroma was mild maltiness and a little caramel. Taste a mild bitterness with some malt and hops. Pleasant enough.
